votes. the open seat in california 26. we don't know what will happen there. 100% are in california. mary bono mack is behind. will she join her husband coming an ex-member of congress. bilbray is behind with 100% reporting in california. as we mentioned already, incumbent allen west is behind in florida 18 with all the votes supposedly counted. representative menechek is leading. that appears to be a couple thousand votes apart. mike mcintyre, will he be one of the few blue dogs that remains? he has a small lead. there will be a run-off for one house seat in louisiana, the third district. it will be between two republicans there. but if all those leads hold, nbc news is current ly projecting they could pick up eight seats in the house again. yes, we know all those 100%. mail ballots particularly out in the state of california so we'll see but if all leads hold it's a net pickup of eight seats for the democrats in the house. there's a lot more to come on this special two-hour post-election edition of "the daily rundown." i'm basically going on no sleep so you never know what i'm goi

it to their advantage in states like illinois. california is a whole different story where you have an independent commission drawing the lines there. it really will dramatically shape control of congress. >> i was simply going to make the point about illinois. the viewers don't think it's only the republicans who are redrawing districts. democrats did the exact same thing in illinois, and we'll see what the results are. sometimes they draw districts expecting a certain outcome and the voters surprise them. >> brown: while we're talking about the how, because earlier we talked about the senate in a kind of bigger picture. stu, remind us about the house situation. >> all 435 seats are up in the house but not all 435 are competitive. only about 70 or so are really worth watching for the chance of one party to steal a seat from the other party. the democrats need 25 seats in order toigate majority and presumably reinstall california, nancy pelosi as speaker be as she once was. that seems unlikely. the democrats have said we have enough seats in play, and when we get out west, california, washington,
